It’s getting very exciting for Coxhoe’s community.
We’ve had a month of voting for Coxhoe Village Hall’s Solar Panel Project which has been intense. The vote is in respect of the M&S Energy competition. Winning could lead to the implementation of the project and the potential saving of about £3k a year. That could be the difference between the Hall remaining open or being forced to close. It has been a fantastic struggle between Hartlepool Sea Cadets and Coxhoe Village Hall as the two leading projects in the North East, with the lead being shared by both bids at different times. The vote ends at 23.59 on Monday, 10th October 2016. We don’t know what the result will be, but we know that Coxhoe needs to keep on voting. The Village Hall still needs several hundred votes to have the best chance of success. You can find out more about how to make your vote count here. Please Vote now!
Over lapping with that vote and starting on Saturday 8th October is the voting for this year’s X Factor. This year we have Coxhoe’s Sam Lavery in the Live Shows. Hopefully we will find ourselves voting every week for Sam right until the Live Finals in December. Banners have already been displayed on the Red Lion. The Parish Council are in the process of printing posters and flyers. We’ve had a television company in the Front Street already. Sam is due to appear on Lorraine Kelly on Friday morning and Sam’s Mam and Dad on the local television news. Please Vote Sam!
On a lighter note our voluntary web administrator, Ian Forster, claims he ‘never watches X Factor’ and is watching it now because at last it has someone with real talent in Sam. However, we now have evidence that he has been photographed with no less than three previous X factor contestants. Do you know who they are?
